In my adorable little bullet journal this year, i have decided to start noting down one thing that made me happy every single day. I want to remember being happy this year when i look back!
Last year was terrible, which you can read a little bit more about here, but i often wonder what things i overlooked on a day-to-day basis. What don’t i remember from last year that actually made me happy?
Some of the things are very insignificant but they all made me happy. I figured i’d pop them all into a little post each month and if anyone wants to use this idea, let me know what things made you happy!

JANUARY 31st – Went shopping with mum and bought some things i love.
Some days are vague, some days nothing happened and i had to pull something out my arse, and some days were so amazing i struggled to pick any one thing. But 2020 is for focusing on the positive and being the best i possibly can be, so that’s what we’re going to focus on!
I’m going to publish my list every single month for myself to look back on – whilst i already have my bullet journal, i think some things are nice to share publicly.
I’d like to remind everyone to look at the small wins, the seemingly insignificant positives, and remember them as much as you can. They’ll help more than you think.
